Use the Introduction page of the New SMTP Send Connector wizard to specify the name and purpose of the Send connector.

  • Name
    Use this field to specify a name for the Send connector that will help you distinguish this Send connector from other Send connectors in your configuration.
  • Select the intended use for this Send connector
    Use this field to configure the connector usage type according to how the connector will be used. The usage type determines the default permission sets that are assigned on the connector and grants those permissions to trusted security principals. Security principals include users, computers, and security groups. A security principal is identified by a security identifier (SID).

    • Custom   Select this option to create a customized connector that will be used to connect with systems that are not Exchange servers.

    • Internal   Internal Send connectors are used to send e-mail to servers in your Exchange organization. This connector will be configured to route e-mail to your internal Exchange servers as smart hosts.

    • Internet   Internet Send connectors are used to send e-mail to the Internet. This connector will be configured to use Domain Name System (DNS) MX records to route e-mail.

    • Partner   Partner Send connectors are used to send e-mail to partner domains. This connector will be configured to only allow connections to servers that authenticate with Transport Layer Security (TLS) certificates for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) domains that are included in the list of domain-secured domains. You can add domains to this list by using the TLSSendDomainSecureList parameter in the Set-TransportConfig command.
